Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu By all means, Ubuntu Linux and Canonical Ltd. have made a spectacular arrival on the Linux scene lately. The combination is like a dream come true for many, many Linux aficionados: tightly selected bleeding edge packages to focus the distribution on a single CD, corporate backing, 18 month support, that all sounds like a formidable package.

gnome system tools

Aren't the Gnome System utilities just using Red Hat's code? If not its odd that they look like exact copies of what Red Hat developed. Mind you I don't think that's a bad thing, I'm just surprised you think there is much of a difference.

it was originally developed by ximian and has similarities to redhat tools but supports more distros. this is useful for support reasons
